Thousands of years hence, many races inhabit a universe where a mind's potential is determined by its location in space - from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures and technology can function. Nobody knows what strange force partitioned space into these 'zones of thought', but when the warring Straumli realm use an ancient Transcendent artefact as a weapon, they unwittingly unleash an awesome power that destroys thousands of worlds and enslaves all natural and artificial intelligence. Fleeing the threat, a family of scientists, including two children, are taken captive by the Tines - an alien race with a harsh medieval culture - and used as pawns in a ruthless power struggle. A rescue party, not entirely composed of humans, must free the children - and retrieve a secret that may save the rest of interstellar civilization.… (mais)

When I first read this book, years ago, I was blown away by the scope of the story and the intricacy and originality of the plot. Reading it again, I'm amazed at how well this book has weathered the years (it was written in 1992). Of the two parallel plot lines, the first time I read it I was more interested in the fate of the two children shipwrecked on the Tines' World among hostile, group-minded aliens and their complex and Machiavellian culture. This time, it was the story of the transcendent Power/Artificial Intelligence that is threatening to destroy the universe, and the small crew of four (one human female, one male human/puppet/zombie, two wagon-mounted kelp-like aliens) who are trying simultaneously to rescue the children and defeat the Power/A.I. Perversion. How these two stories tie together, and the deep history and culture of this far future galactic civilization, is an amazing and satisfying read. ( )

I first read this in the mid-'90s; I decided to return to it now and see how it's held up.

Quick take: I still love it.

Is it really one of the _Greatest SF Novels Ever_? Not really. It's got its flaws. It's also certainly not a good choice for fledgling SF readers.

However, it IS a riotously good Space Opera full of swagger, Big Concepts, galaxy-in-motion 'sturm und drang', and a cast of billions. You know, Cecil B. DeMille-level stuff, not indie film material. It takes your mind on a wild ride, and I enjoy it very much. ( )

In NPR's top 100 Sci-fi/Fantasy list this was one I'd been wanting to read for a while. The ideas presented in it were inventive and elaborate, but my difficulty in following them kept me from fully enjoying the story. After reading the wiki synopsis of the book upon completion, I realized how many small things I'd missed. Vinge doesn't talk down to his readers -- he lets them discover things for themselves -- but unfortunately I didn't read between the lines on a number of concepts, leaving me confused for far too long. I have a feeling I would enjoy this one a lot more on a second reading. ( )

Sci-fi heeft vele gezichten en wat Vernor Vinge laat zien is een indrukwekkend staaltje verbeeldingskracht. Vinge neemt zijn tijd (613 bladzijden) om niet alleen een spannend intergalactisch verhaal op poten te zetten maar ook een aantal werelden en rassen te creëren die fantastisch uitgewerkt zijn in een universum waarin elke zone zijn eigen kosmische wetten van tijd en ruimte heeft.
Klinkt ingewikkeld, maar omdat Vinge er zijn tijd voor neemt, wordt je als lezer langzaam maar zeker opgenomen in die visie en leer je bijvoorbeeld de 'Tines' - een hondenras dat in kleine roedels leeft en zo door hun gedeelde vermogens net zo intelligent en bekwaam als de mensheid is- door en door kennen.
Vinge gebruikt al deze invalshoeken om zijn goed tegen kwaad verhaal kracht bij te zetten en zorgt voor genoeg plottwist en verrassingen om de boel op tempo te houden.
Niet altijd het meest evidente boek, maar met veel plezier gelezen! ( )

Another 4.5 starworthy book. This book while not being nearly as excellent as Deepness is still great. If it were not for the rather hard to understand ending I would have definitely rated 5 stars ( )

Mr. Vinge writes what might be called thoughtful space opera. His setting is nothing less than the galaxy we call the Milky Way. I don't mean that he simply lets loose a few spaceships and has them chase one another among the stars to act out another old-fashioned shoot-'em-up plot. The human and nonhuman characters of "A Fire Upon the Deep" live in a complex galactic society that Mr. Vinge has worked out in admirable if economical detail, and the scope of his story is such that it requires just a background.
